“In 1995, the Center for Disease Control & Prevention [CDC] provided to then-Senator Donald Riegle (D-Mich.) a complete list of all biological materials–including viruses, retroviruses, bacteria, and fungi–that the CDC provided to Iraq from Oct. 1, 1984 through Oct. 13, 1993. Among the materials on the list are several types of dengue and sandfly fever virus, West Nile virus, and plague-infected mouse tissue smears.”
